“"Achillion Palace would definitely stay there again"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Never been to Crete before. So we were a little uncertain of what to expect. My uncertainties were unfounded. We spent a week in Rethymno at the Achillion Palance. Upon arrival we were met by Thanasis the hotel manager, who was very friendly and very helpful throughout our stay in Crete. . Both Thanasis and Manolis at reception were very helpful and knowledgeable on their country and offered us assistance on where, how and what sights to see. We stayed in a double room with aircon and a very comfortable double bed, our room was cleaned daily. The hotel staff as well as the young waiter that greeted us every morning for breakfast where very polite and attentive. The hotel provides it's guests with a variety of breakfast and hot or cold beverages to choose from, which is exactly what was needed to start our day. The hotel in general is spacious, clean and tidy, with a large and cool reception area, the garden area was very pretty, peaceful and relaxing both during the day and at night. The local beaches, and shops are very close by, as well as the picturesque harbour and light house. On our last day in Crete we never left the hotel and instead spent the day by the hotel pool on the roof. We found Crete itself very clean and the people very friendly and polite. On our next visit to Rethimno we will be most definitely be staying at the Achillion Palace again and would recommend the hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in a double room with a very comfortable double bed.

We were greeted by a very polite helpful hotel manager Thanasis. Hotel reception very spacious , rooms nice and cleaned every day. Reception desk very helpful and knowledgeable on sights to see in beautiful Crete. Brilliant breakfast to start your day and catered for all and young waiter very polite and attentive. Hotel is situated near centre and close to old town too with many restaurants to go to. When you are finished with sight seeing take a day off and lounge by the pool on the roof top . Highly recommended. Value for money.

Absolutely a cosy hotel. We stayed there for 14 days while we were studying at the university. When we arrived they had just opened, so everything wasn`t ready yet, but we just kindly ask about filling the pool on the roof with water, and they did, and it was just fantastic spending the afternoons on top of the roof, getting som tan :) A big pluss that the hotel is right in the town center of Rethymno :)

Room Tip: choose a room to the backgarden. Not the best view, but silent and relaxing :)

Room Tip: There are rooms towards the road for those who want to feel close to what is happening in the street...
